September 19, 2015 marked the first ever of what I hope is an annual event. The 2015 LilleInTheCity/Lille on the Lakeshore was held at the Lighthouse Inn in Two Rivers, Wisconsin.
This is how the event was described on the Facebook invite:
Disclaimer: I am not an official Líllébaby Ambassador.(but I love my LIllebaby immensely) ~Crystal
Lillebaby is an awesome 6 position baby carrier. Do you already love Líllébaby & want to meet other LILLE Lovers as well as giving other parents/friends a chance to learn about this brand of baby carrier. Even if you aren't into babywearing, come hang out!!! This should be a fun opportunity to meet some awesome people!
Ethnic Fest will be going on just a few blocks away, so stop in at the Lighthouse Inn Lounge at 11am and let's get to know one another!!! Complimentary refreshments & a healthy snack will be provided. We will have several gift baskets to be raffled off at noon - MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN. Stay tuned for more about each of our generous sponsors!!!
The first 15 people who signed up will have a special treat bag waiting for them (must be present to receive). Just for attending the event, you'll receive a ticket to use toward the gift baskets. Additional tickets will be for sale $1 each, 6 for $5 or 13 for $10.
